Another lipstick favorite that has been discontinued!
I purchased this one at the beginning of 2011 on BB's website and had to return it because it had a slightly bad odor (have never had that happen...but I guess it does sometimes...with everything)
I didn't want to return...loved the color! Loved!...but back it went...and then...it began disappearing from all the vendors save one...QVC, and I hope it's still there.
The reason I'm going to pay the horrible S&H charges to get this lipstick back is that it's so perfect! I always wanted it. It came out with the Nude look of 2009. It is really my lips but better...a little pink...a little peachy...a little shine. You don't need a lip gloss at all...and it brightens my face.
For some of you...it's too subtle, but for this mua'er...It's perfect.

This is one of the lip colors contained in the Earth Metal Palette. As soon as I opened this palette, this was the color I immediately gravitated to and swatched. It is a perfect MLBB color, sheer, but not too sheer, very creamy and moisturizing. It definitely leans more towards the peach than the pink and there is a subtle shimmer in the formula. After applying this I immediately hit the Bobbi Brown website and purchased a full size of this. I have a feeling I have finally found an HG lipstick, which runs $22. EDIT: After getting the full sized product I am even more convinced of the perfectness of this lipstick. It is creamy and moisturizing, does not dry the lips and has a decent "lasting power".
This lipstick is lovely. It is a sheer creamy, peachy pink with a hint of shimmer. The shimmer just gives the lips a sheen rather than making you look like a robot as some shimmery lipsticks can do. It is super moisturising and surprisingly long-lasting for such a creamy formula. It just gives the lips a hint of colour whilst making them look well-moisturised and sheeny. I love it and highly recommend it to someone who likes a relatively nude lip but with a hint of natural colour.
This is only the second lipstick I've ever purchased in my life, and the first I would repurchase. Rose Garden is a perfect shimmery pinkish-nude, and the color is sheer and wears like a gloss. I love that it's light and comfortable to wear. I've been wearing this lipcolor nonstop since I bought it 2 weeks ago.
